Tour Code: SOA-005

Depart for a scenic drive through the now peaceful countryside of Normandy, where 60 years ago the most pivotal battle on the Western Front took place.

We begin in Arromanches, site of the artificial harbor which was pre-fabricated and towed here, helping the Allies bring supplies ashore. Remnants of the artificial port can still be seen today. Visit the Landing Museum here before having lunch.

After lunch, continue to St. Laurent and the moving American Cemetery which overlooks Omaha Beach, where some of the most intense fighting took place. Next visit Pointe du Hoc, where a heavily-armed German battery was heroically destroyed by American troops on the first day of the invasion. The view from here also provides a unique perspective on to the rugged terrain of Omaha Beach. Return to the ship following this moving and historical tour.
